Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in The Villages - Villa On The green

Enjoy All The Avtivities the Villages Has To Offer In A Beautiful New Villa.

VRBO is a wonderful tool to find the perfect property. At the top of the first page you can enter the days you will be traveling, the rate you want to pay, and what is important to you to have in the rental. If you use these tools it will save you a lot of time. It eliminates you calling or emailing an owner asking the availability or rate, when all the information is at your finger tips.

******We enjoy hearing from perspective guests. To save yourself time, we keep the rates and calendar current. If you scroll to the bottom of the page you will find both. If we have missed something after you've read the description or something isn't clear, please let us know and we will correct it immediately. If you inquire and you are sending multiple emails to owners and not reading what is below, we unfortunately need to reduce the number of responses, and you will get a generic email******

Summer is great in The Villages, the crowds are gone, rates greatly reduced, tee times easy to get, and no wait to eat in restaurants.

In less than one year we have had 17 positive reviews from our guests. We strive to correct anything that needs attention and want our guests to have 100% guest satisfaction. Our primary concern is for our guests to be comfortable, have a easy process in booking, and leave the villa feeling like they want to return for their next visit to The Villages.

Rates include 2 Resident ID's, exit clean, and taxes. All Inclusive. Much cheaper than a hotel room and you have a golf front villa with the use of all The Villages amenities.

New 4/14, right on the golf course, and close to the pool, new town square, and activities. In the summer the crowds are gone and there's no wait to get into a restaurant or get tee times. Plus, the grand kids are out of school, with Disney an hour away, and air boat rides, alligator farms, and state parks within half hour of The Villages. Spend the month and have part of the time with children and grand kids and part of the month enjoying all the amenities The Villages has to offer. July and August seem so far away, but now is the time to book, hold the house, and plan that get away when the rates are so low. Grandparent Camp is held every summer and will be memorable for all generations. Plus, the grandkids love riding in the 4 person golf cart with Grandma and Grandpa! Seat belts keep everyone safe.

Each house in The Villages has 2 Resident ID's allowing 2 people to golf for no charge and use the amenities. If you will have more than 2 people in the house, you can get 2 guest passes and your guest will have to pay to play golf and may have to pay to use the amenities. *We provide you with 2 Resident ID's and not guest ID's. With a Resident ID you can play golf for free and do all the things that a resident can do. Guest passes do not give you the same privileges. When renting a house in The Villages make sure you're getting a Resident ID and not a guest pass.

Men's Callaway Strata 13 piece golf set with bag and ladies Callaway Strata 11 piece golf set with bag are provided for our guests use during their stay. (Both are starter sets) If you're a golfer, there is no need for you to bring your clubs. If you've thought about learning the game of golf, but didn't want to invest in clubs, this is a perfect time to take a lesson in The Villages and use one of the 30 plus golf courses.

All inclusive pricing.*** The rate includes Sumter County Taxes, Resident ID transfer to your name, departure cleaning, beds made, and towels provided. There is a Keyless entry system. You will be provided with your own personal code to access the property. This will ensure your safety knowing there are no keys floating around from previous guests. The code to the door is changed between guests. WiFi available through Comcast and we have not had any issues with getting service.

***For guests staying less than one week (7days) you will be required to pay an additional fee for the Resident ID and for departure cleaning.***

The new in 2014, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa is located on the golf course with an amazing water view from the screened in lanai. No neighbors behind you and walls on either side for total privacy. It’s located less than one mile from Brownwood Square, the recreation center, and the pool. In less than 2 minutes in the golf cart you can find restaurants, entertainment, and stores. It’s at the hub of all the activities, but with privacy. The best of 2 worlds.

There are 30 golf courses that you can golf for free and 35 golf courses that you can pay to play. The Country Club Restaurants are open to all residents. There’s tennis, pickle ball, shuffle board, and over 1,000.00 clubs and activities. Nightly, there is entertainment in each of the Town Squares.

Each bedroom has a queen size bed, TV, and DVD player. The living area has a 40” flat screen TV and Blu-ray player and comfortable seating for 6. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances and equipped for the casual cook or the gourmet chef. All Pfaltzgraff dishes and utensils. There is seating for 6 at the counter high table. The screened lanai has a table with seating for 6, special dinnerware for enjoying your meal outside and also a fountain for your relaxation. The triple door leading to the lanai has 2 sliders that open and increases the open living area.

Mailbox, Pinellas Pool, Bocce, and shuffle board 1/2 mile

Big Cypress Rec Center, pool bocce, shuffle board,

tennis, pickle ball 3/10 mile

Pinellas Plaza 4/10 mile

Eisenhower Rec Center 1 mile

Close to all the activity, but when you want privacy and peace and quiet, the villa is the place for down time.

About Gary and Jeanne Smith

We're 3 years from retirement and hope The Villages will be a home we can enjoy as snowbirds.

Gary and Jeanne Smith purchased this villa in 2014

Why Gary and Jeanne Smith chose The Villages

We fell in love with the location. The villa has a back yard facing the golf course, with a beautiful view from so many areas of the villa. It's within walking distance to Brownwood Square, the pool, and recreation center. It's close to everything, but when in the house, you feel you're in your own world.

What makes this villa unique

The view! The villa is brand new and close to everything you need to have the total Village experience. Or, you can simply sit on the lanai, enjoy the beautiful view, and read your favorite book.

Villa on the Green

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your villa. Everything was perfect. There wasn't one thing that we wanted that wasn't provided. We enjoyed watching the golfers out our lanai and couldn't believe people golfing at 7:30 in the morning in the rain. Marv golfed and I took line dance lessons to the tune of 6 hours a week. We would gladly rent your villa next year but it is already rented. We were able to rent another one for next year.

December in The Villages

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. We did not use the golf cart because our days were filled with activities associated with buying a house there. Your home was beautifully appointed. We enjoyed the lanai and watching players on the golf course. We will not be renting your lovely home again because we did buy a home in the Villages which we will use as a second home. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Wonderful Screened Lanai with View of First Green of Palmetto Golf Course

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful new home with many comforts. Owners were easy to work with and would answer questions promptly, both before and during our stay. We enjoyed breakfast each morning on the screened lanai and woke early several days to enjoy spectacular sunrises. We played six executive golf courses during our stay. Be sure to sign up for thevillages.net internet service for $8 per month to assist with making tee times. This is available at Sumter Landing and can be done after obtaining resident I.D. cards. Golf cart worked great and was a fun way to get around and was also useful on the local courses. Residence is only a few blocks from Big Cypress Recreation Center which features six pickleball courts and two tennis courts. Nearby Brownwood Square has several good restaurants, including Riccardi's Italian and Gators Dockside (a great new sports bar). The new Publix grocery store at nearby Grand Traverse Plaza has excellent made-to-order sub sandwiches which we picked up several days for lunch on the lanai. Thanks for making your home available. It was a truly enjoyable vacation.

Our first trip to the villages

  • 5 of 5

Home was very nice fully equipped large and comfortable . We liked the view of the golf course and the close proximity to grocery store and rec centers and pools. would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the villages. Would have liked some more info on the pass for the gates , and how to work the alarms at bedside. but we had a great time. We loved all the restaurants at the championship courses. They were all excellent.

Retirement Search

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to explore The Villages for a possible retirement location so decided to rent a place closed to golf, the new Brownwood Town Square and wanted to be able to enjoy the outdoors in the morning and evening. We selected the right place and it was a very positive experience working with Jeanne and Gary. The villa was new and when we arrived was very clean. A few issues were uncovered and were taken care of quickly by the local management group.

Each morning we had coffee outdoors while watching the early morning golfers tee off and enjoyed a glass of wine admiring the beautiful sunsets as the last of the golfers tried to finish their round. The golf cart (4 person) was great and we used it daily as our mode of transportation. The villa is closed to good resturants and grocery store.

We golfed 4 times during our stay on the executive courses and really liked the fact that each was rated 1-4 based on the course difficulty. We didn't bring out clubs since the villa provided both a mens/ladies set. The sets are starter sets and we wished we had brought our own since we would have liked to pay a few rounds at the championship courses. If you are pretty serious golfers I would recommend bringing your own clubs.

While we haven't made a final decision on retirement at The Villages, we will be making a return trip and would definitely stay at the Pinellas Villa again. I would recommend this villa for both a short term or long term stay. Thanks Gary and Jeanne for sharing your new villa with us.

Villa on the Palmeto Golf Course

  • 5 of 5

Location of the rental was great near Brownwood town center.We had a garage door problem initially (user error-garage door is locked between guests) and Jamie the local contact arrived quickly to explain the situation. The villa was in excellent shape and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We travel to the villages a few times a year and would not hesitate to rent this villa again.

***The VRBO map is not up to date. Eastwood Terrace is not on the map and the location VRBO places the house is not accurate. I apologize and have requested VRBO update the site. Once they do so, I will remove this information and confirm the correct location on the map***

32 golf courses with no fees with your resident ID's, 11 country club courses (fee charged); Bownwood, the newest town square has nightly activities, restaurants, shopping and only one and a half miles from the villa; Pinellas Pool is half mile away and has shuffle board, boche ball, shuffle board, tennis, and pickle ball; Big Cypress Recreation Center is 3/10 mile from the villa and has a pool, boche ball, shuffle board, corn hall, tennis, pickle ball, and numerous clubs and activities; The Regional Recreation Center (Eisenhower Center) is one mile from the villa; Pinellas Plaza is 4/10 mile. All are a pleasant walk if you are so inclined, or a quick bike ride or golf cart ride away.

Sumter Landing Town Square is less than 7 miles away and takes less than 15 minutes in the golf cart.
